Sponsor: Birmingham Airport Limited
The proposal seeks to establish revised departure routes from runway 15 utilising Performance-based Navigation (PBN) technology, following the extension to the airport’s instrument runway.
As part of the original decision to approve the airspace change requested by Birmingham Airport Limited (BAL) the CAA set a number of conditions, one of which required BAL to conduct a further trial of 'Option 5' for turboprop-driven aircraft. More detail on this can be found in our
Decision document on this page (para 126-7).
The CAA has now received representations from Birmingham Airport Limited (BAL), which in the interests of transparency, we are making available to the aviation community:
Comments on BAL’s proposal will be gratefully received by 9 September 2016:

Note: BAL suspended its request for approval of the 2
northbound SIDs (as discussed in the Decision document, paragraph 17).
BAL has re-designed the SIDs. The aim of the re-design work was to
produce aircraft tracks that better reflected the proposals consulted
upon. BAL has submitted these re-designs to the CAA (see below).
